Survivors aid crash rescuers

Three Hayfield men who were involved in a serious road accident last year have organised a week of charity fund-raising events as a thank-you to the rescue teams who helped them.

Friends Simon Derbyshire, Tom Morgan and David Dunkerley and The Royal Hotel are to put on range of events between September 26 and 30.

The trio said: “We were all involved in a serious car crash last August and thanks to the professionalism, help and care given by the First Responders and The Air Ambulance team we are now here today and we would like to say thank you to them all.”

They are supporting the Emergency First Response, Derbyshire Leicestershire Rutland Air Ambulance and Cure Cystic Fibrosis.
